Information

A lovely 17thC English antique oak coffer of pegged construction, circa 1640.

Sourced from a private Suffolk-based collection and about as untouched as you will find!

Most probably Gloucestershire-made given the style of carving to the apron.

With original three panelled top over a twin panelled front supported on stile feet.

Unusual construction to the end boards where a central rail and two panels have been used in additon to the outer framework of rails and stiles.

Why the quirky twist?  Well, the maker was clearly lazy as he never finished carving the two front panels, although they bear feint marks to the mid point of each panel indicating that the carving of a full arcade was intented!  An interesting observation you might say and it is unusual to find a chest with incomplete carving.

Condition - Surface marks specifically to the lid. Lock in situ but lacking key. Original hinges and original timbers throughout aside one base board and a minor timber fillet also to the base.

This is a good looking chest all in all.
